For the week we were here this was probably the best place to stay. Very windy and rough seas on the north and east side of the island. Recommend the Villas or Beach Front, both have wonderful views of the ocean or bay.Great food, there are probably 30 restaurants with in walking distance. Best snorkeling we found on the Island was off the beach left of the little rock island.
We enjoyed our brief stay having our choice of numerous restaurants within a five minute walk. The beach was nice and the ocean swimming conditions were safe with a sandy bottom and not very deep. Staff was very friendly.

"Not five star, views and island make it worth it"
This resort is not five star for a few reasons. One being there was an insanely loud reception/party one of the nights we stayed that went until 1am. Tons of people called and complained and nothing was done. When I say loud, I mean we could hear everyone word to every song and could feel the bass bumping. That kind of stuff doesn't happen at a true five star resort. The party was with sonesta so they knew about it and gave no warning. Also, you usually have to ask twice to get whatever you're needing. They are all very nice but definitely never in a hurry. Beautiful island and amazing views and beaches and that's why I would go back. Also the food in azul is very very good and that is definitely five star!

I got to the resort on Monday around 5 PM a lot of cats around which were surprising but no problems. Parking was good I rented a car from Fox. I pretty much went to their local Casino, bar, and convenience store which were just a few minutes from my room which was great. The hotel staff gave me comp points for the casino and a map of the island which was very helpful. I did a few excursions; visited many beaches; ate at a bunch of restaurants around the island. I would be back tomorrow but still paying of this recent trip and had a wonderful time while on the island.
